Does anyone know how long the HEPA filter last in the normal daily use (i.e. 2-4 hours per day) ?
24 hours a day will last 6 months
Can the wifi be turned off completely so it does not transmit?
If for some reason you don't want it to transmit you can just operate it manually straight out of the box. I believe you need to download the app and connect it to a 2.4 ghz WiFi modem in order for the Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier to regularly be transmitting. From memory, the air purifier may look for an app and a WiFi connection when you first plug it in. (We have always had ours connected to WiFi because we want to take advantage of all the features).
Hi everyone. I can’t find any info on exactly what it does. Air purification but it shows humidity levels in the app so does it lower humidity too?
No Carol it doesn't lower humidity, it isn't an air conditioner. It filters the air in a room and improves the air quality. The Xiaomi 3H air purifier gives a reading of the temperature and humidity in the room merely as an additional feature.
Thanks for that Greg. I wasn’t looking for an air conditioner, more a 2 in 1 dehumidifier and air purifier but I guess they don’t exist yet.
Hi Carol. Actually Air Purifier / Dehumidifier Combo units do exist. Do a search online and you might find something to suit your needs.
I have just purchased two of the 3H air purifiers and out of the box they picked up readings of 6 and 8 (bedroom and living room, respectively).
They are now down to 1 and 2 respectively.
I find this extremely hard to believe given I live in Sydney, right next to train tracks.
Has anyone else has any potentially incorrect or questionable readings?
@Jeremy I know the air quality in Canberra is worse than in Sydney ATM but what was yours when you first booted up your Xiaomi and what was it able to get it down to?
The sensor is useless. In the middle of a smoke haze in Sydney it hasn't gone over 10. However if you manually turn it up (no auto mode) then I believe that it is effective.
if u close all ur windows and doors down to 1 and 2 is normal, just get an air freshener spray a little near the sensor to test it.
and sydney using electric trains, is ok to live next to train tracks, also fine with the high ways, its the main roads with slow and stuck traffic u need to worry about.
